Affordable Housing Summit

City staff hosted an Affordable Housing Summit at the Revelstoke Community Centre from 6-9 pm on March 9, 2023. The intent of the summit was to hear how some of our neighbouring local governments are addressing housing needs.

Special guests from the Revelstoke Community Housing Society, Whistler Housing Authority, District of Tofino, Resort Municipality of Sun Peaks, Town of Banff, Town of Canmore and Sicamous Housing Committee will spend time sharing their affordable housing models. 

Following the presentations, there was Q&A for the audience to ask specific questions. Not all of the questions were answered due to time constraints. We are happy to provide the responses to the unanswered questions in the Q&A in the column on the right.

Community stakeholders gathered with members of Council, City staff and Housing Summit presenters at the Community Economic Development meeting space following the Affordable Housing Summit. The Housing Summit Après event was hosted by the Business and Visitor Info Centre partners with refreshments provided by Tourism Revelstoke, and enabled affordable housing proponents to meet in-person with each other to share proposed initiatives, best practices and next steps. In addition to those named above, attendees included Board members representing the Economic Development Commission, Tourism Revelstoke, Chamber of Commerce, Community Futures, Revelstoke Community Housing Society, Community Connections, and other organizations supporting affordable housing initiatives.
